Check Your Program for VA Approval
Programs and certificates that have not been approved by the State Approving Agency (SAA) and the VA, cannot be certified. Students should check the VA WEAMS Institution Search website to
confirm that their program is VA approved so they can receive VA education benefits.
Search for Program Approval
Don't see your program or certificate listed? Programs/certificates not listed cannot be certified, but to begin the process of requesting a new program be added, email VMSS@ucdenver.edu. Please note that the approval process is administered through SAA and the VA and can take up to 12 months.
Pursuant to the Department of Veterans Affairs regulation on Modifications of Approval Requirements for Courses Designed to Prepare Individuals for Licensure or Certification, for programs designed to prepare an individual for licensure or certification in a particular field/state, the course [of study] must meet all instructional curriculum licensure requirements of such state.
In the event that a student is enrolled in a licensure program in a state where they will not be able to pursue licensure due to the academics of the program, the student may not use VA funds for said program. You can find state-by-state licensure requirements via our State Authorization webpage. Please contact the office of Veteran & Military Student Services with any questions.
